verbs are clearer.
Let’s skip the explanation and get right to the examples:
- Daily review vs. Plan my storybook day
- Journal entry vs Calm my super charged mind (via journal)
- First draft of X vs Write a kick-ass first draft of X
See the difference?
Tasks don’t have to be matter-of-fact; they can be outcome focused, verb-driven, something we own. We need to know why we’re doing what we’re doing, so why not put purpose into the little things? This can be very helpful in weeding out those items that don’t build up to the greater goals.
To me this is an excellent way (though not the only way) to combine Agile thinking into GTD. At the very least, it injects a little fun into my day.
